Seat 20V20, one of the concepts that draw attention during this year Geneva Motor Show anticipates a future SUV launched by the Spanish brand until the end of this decade. Until then, Seat details the design inspirations for its new concept SUV.
 
“Like an arrow”. This is how SEAT Design director Alejandro Mesonero-Romanos summarises the sense of speed and dynamism he wanted to convey when creating the 20V20 showcar.
 
Close to 15 people dedicate five months to working almost exclusively on “creating a car from scratch”, says Ángel Lahoz, the engineer who is responsible for the 20V20 showcar, who points out that one of the most particular qualities of a car with these characteristics is that every single piece of it is “unique” and handcrafted. 
 
An important element the designers manipulated is tension, and SEAT’s Design director uses a sports metaphor to illustrate this: “We wanted to capture the coiled tension of an athlete in the starting blocks and convey a moment of maximum physical and mental alertness”. 
 
Meanwhile, head of Interior Design Jaume Sala maintains that the entire inside of the vehicle has been created with open space in mind, without any dividing elements, “giving a loft effect, but retaining its personality and driver-focussed layout for greater driving pleasure”.
